COACH ALVINE QUOTE
"We came out and battled and did some good things right from the start. But, it's a tough task to come here and get a result. I'm disappointed in the result, but not disappointed in the performance of the team. It's a good building block to come out and compete with the team that was in the National Championship game last year and is the No. 1 team in the country this year. Our freshman did very well, especially playing an ACC team and the top team in the country in two of the first three matches. It is definitely valuable experience moving forward."
